I did make a new equipment profile for extract with the 4 gal pot I plan to use. BeerSmith calculates a 3.something gallon boil. That's why this is so confusing to me. It seems like everything is set up right but I still get wonky numbers.
If the final IBUs had gone down I wouldn't have questioned it since you dilute with top up water in the fermenter. But since the IBUs go up I am very confused...

Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.
